ANTI-POLLUTION SUBTERFUGE BILLS OPPOSED BY KEN REID AT CONGRESSIONAL HEARING in M Special to The Courier WASHINGTON Mar. 8--Opening hearings in the 76th Congress Friday, March 3, the Rivers and Harbois Committee o£ the House o£ Representatives heard Surgeon Geneial Parran o£ the U S Public Health Service Abel Wolman of the Maryland Health Department and president of the U S Public Health Association and numerous representatives of the larger polluting industries of the Nation deplore the polluted condition o£ the Nation s watenvays and exhort Congress to pass a bill for the relief of the suffering public from the evils of I pollution The committee had bejoie it five separate bills, H R 205 by Mr Parsons of Illinois, H R 922 by Mr Spence of Kentucky, H R 2890 by Mr Bland of Virginia, H R 4314 by Mr J J Mansfield of Texas, chairman of the committee, (introduced at the request of Abel Wolman, all providing for admimshation by the U S Public Health Service and authorizing an annual appropriation of $1,000,000 to that agency, S700 000 of which was to be given by it to state health departments for investigation and study and H R 4170 by Mr. Mundt of South Dakota, which named the Army Engineer Corps as *he administration and enforcement agency and authorized an annual appropriation to that agent} of ?500,000 for the control of pollution under the clear authority for such control contained in the bill With the exception ol this Mundt bill, which the committee had apparently not planned to consider since it had not im ited its proponents to participate in the hearing, all of these bills were essentially the same and met with the general ap- pioval of the \arious iepresentati\es of industry and public health H E 4314 seemed to be the favorite of this strange collection 01 industrial polluters and U S Public Health officials One aftei another the representatives of industry--pulp and papei tanneiies coal, and oil--told the committee that then industi les v ere working hard to sol\ e the pollution problem and stiessed the importance of then industrj and the large number of \vorkeis employed to the economic uelfaie of the Nation, and the danger of disturbing them in such trying times Frequent praise of the U. S Public Service, state health departments and the handling of pollution by them and interstate compacts was heard from these witnesses To the uninitiated this scene of perfect accord and harmony between the public health officials and the accredited representatives of the very industries that are presently the cause of much of the Nation s i worst pollution working together for the passage oE a bill "to create a division of water pollution control in the United States Public Health Service," uould see-n to herald the arrival of the millenium in matters pertaining to pure streams But to those conservationists who had long fought the battle for pure sti earns against the perennial opposition of these same industml lobbjists, the real motive of the support for these Quizzed in Murder William Hardy (above), who police say -was recently released from Patton State Hospital, Calif, where he was placed after a hammer-attack on a half-sister, was quizzed by Los Angeles authorities about the mnr der of Anya Sosoyeva, Russian dancer and drama student.
